The Photographer


I think it is absolutely vital that you feel comfortable working with me, so here’s a bit about how Nadia Joyce Photography began and who I am.



My full name is Nadia Joyce Padzensky. Nice to meet you!

My mother taught me how to hold a camera around the age of seven, and it’s been a slippery slope of photographic obsession since then. I graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2009 with my BA in photography. Shortly thereafter, I officially began my own business.

Vision and Style

Storytelling is in my blood; I am a passionate teller of tales. My greatest desire is for my clients to fall in love with their own life’s story through the images we capture together.

My style is genuine and warm, highlighting the emotions present during a shoot. I focus on the in-between moments, just as much as the big, dramatic ones.


I believe reading books is one of the most wonderful uses of one’s time.

I believe spending time outdoors is vital to a fully happy life.

I believe no one should ever suppress their nerdiness.

I believe every opportunity to eat ice cream should be taken advantage of.

I believe dogs are the most wonderful creatures to walk the earth.

I believe love is love.

I very much look forward to meeting you and hearing your own story.

Have a shiny day,
